War Elephant of Carthage and Crew

This magnificent model from Relic Miniatures is the latest addition to the Carthaginian army. Assembly of the model was fairly straight forward, but there were lots of pieces to fuss with to get it all put together correctly. It did require a fair amount of work with liquid green-stuff to smooth the seams and close some gaps. Ears and tusks could both be easily trimmed to the desired size and length. The model is completely metal, so once assembled it is a hefty piece.

It is a mighty creature that is slightly larger than the Gripping Beast elephant already in use by the Carthaginians, but together they look great on the table and should cause significant havoc within the ranks of our enemies.



  1. Fantastic looking elephant, great work!

  2. Love it, especially the texture on the skin.

  3. That is a lovely Ellie! Great painting on a great figure. The Romans will surely weep when you unleash not 1 but 2 of these monsters.

  4. Very fine job on that nellie. Let's hope its as magnificent in action as it is in repose!
